Bob Costas, sports caster and Olympic pink-eye gold medalist, appeared on the Show this morning and they called in Jeff Gordon to talk about the prank. Costas and Gordon are old neighbors so they had a pretty good banter, but the icing on the cake came when Dan asked Jeff where he would take Bob on a ride along in a NASCAR. At this point, I was expecting Jeff to name a high speed banked course like Talladega Speedway. Jeff threw a (right hand) curve and said a road course would be the way to go.
"Hell Yeah!" I said aloud in my car as I was driving to work.
Jeff went on to say (paraphrasing) 'There's something to be said about going 180 mph, but with a road coarse you get all the braking, accelerating and cornering. Not to mention dropping a tire off the curbs every once in a while.'
Stand up guy, that Jeff Gordon.
